I love this color combination, but have to tell you that I mostly use it for Christmas cards! Thought about doing a Christmas card, but then thought, this is a challenge, so let's make something else. I tend to only make sympathy cards when I need one, and if I do make a few ahead, the ladies in my bible study group tend to snatch them up when I'm asked to bring my card box in! So anyway, I challenged myself to make a RED & AQUA sympathy card using a PFS set I borrowed from my friend Michele called Wonderful In Every Way. Take a look...
I started by stenciling my background using PFS's Diamond Motif Stencil with the ink that was left on my aqua brush, using a very light hand. Next I stamped the floral image in black and then embossed it in clear before using the coordinating stencils with a couple shades of red ink and aqua for the leaves. I die cut the image out and after placing it over the stenciled background, decided it looked too plain, so I added Stitched Scalloped Rectangle Die (also PFS) in Turquoise Sea cs (Gina K)...much better!
I stamped and die cut one of the sentiments that comes with the Wonderful In Every Way set, and then finished with a few aqua gemstones from PFS. Hopefully I won't need it and can just enjoy seeing the pretty color combination on something other than a Christmas card!
